INTERNSHIP with LACS
The Latin American and Caribbean Studies program offers internship and volunteer opportunities to UW students and recent graduates. The internship program is designed to provide students and recent graduates with meaningful and educational work experience to supplement and enhance their academic programs. The program benefits from the students and recent graduates’ capabilities to assist in normal work activities and/or with special projects and events. The internships also provide opportunities to establish effective work relationships with professional staff, which may beneficial to future career development.
Internships are usually one academic quarter commitments with the possibility of extension. However, we are always seeking to have interns who are interested in longer-term internships. Internships generally require about 10 hours per week, minimum. We also have occasional short term opportunities available.

Have you traveled to or lived in Latin America/the Caribbean? Do you conduct research about one or many of the countries in this region? Are you from one of these countries? If so, we want your help.
The LACS program is currently producing two-page, country cards for Latin American and Caribbean countries. These two pagers will be a resource available to educators. These country cards are designed to help educators become more knowledgeable about the countries where their students come from. A template has been designed; and the task is to fill in the “blanks” with information about each country. Country cards contain general information such as demographics, customs, culture, current/contemporary country bio, education, religion, etc. We are seeking interns and volunteers to work on one or multiple county cards.
If you are interested in assisting with this project, please email email@example.com with the subject line "COUNTRY CARD"
